2. Here's a bit of trivia about the 9th

Back in the '60s and early '70s, the 2nd movement was the sign-off theme for NBC Nightly News.

One Christmas Eve (I think maybe 1972), they played a good deal of the 4th movement to end their broadcast. Once I found out the name of the music, I asked a local radio station to play the entire symphony for me
